Dr. Mike Brennan - Chiropractor, Better Back Chiropractic


Dr. Brennan has a passion for helping people. This shines through in how much he cares for his patients and it extends far beyond chiropractic care. He takes pride in caring for the “whole” you. As a father and a husband, Dr. Brennan takes a ‘people first’ approach to his practice, and will work within your pace in your healing journey. 

Dr. Brennan gained interest and firsthand experience in chiropractic at a young age. After suffering from intense low back pain a week before a national volleyball tournament, he was introduced to a chiropractor that was able to find the cause of the pain and help him return to peak performance.

As he pursued his passion for learning he discovered many other benefits of chiropractic care. He found relief for his migraines and learned how chiropractic treatments and lifestyle programs could help prevent them from ever returning. With his renewed health he understood the essence of chiropractic care and the benefits of a balanced proactive approach to a healthy active lifestyle.

Dr. Brennan was born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada. After completing a biochemistry degree in St. John’s, Newfoundland, he attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa, USA and graduated with honours in 2004. He then established a successful practice in the US before moving back to Canada in 2010 to start a family. After a short stint in Calgary, he migrated to his wife’s hometown in Nelson, British Columbia to lay down some roots and integrate his passion for his chiropractic work with his love for spending quality time with his family.

After spending 2022 and 2023 on a family adventure exploring Europe, South America, Central America and Canada’s most eastern province to its most western province, Dr. Brennan and his family are extremely excited to continue their adventure, and lay down roots in South Australia.

Being a natural problem solver who loves a dynamic environment, Dr. Brennan particularly loves working with acute injuries that need special attention and longstanding injuries that require trying different approaches to achieve lasting healing. Dr. Brennan also has a keen interest in wellness and preventative care with a focus on optimising body function for each individual. He looks forward to meeting you and being a part of your healing journey.
